How to Install Tile Flooring Properly

Submitted By

I am planning to install a tile floor in my home, in the past i've either installed the tile right over the sub floor or put down backerboard and then tile on top of that with good results either way.  Websites I have researched recomend putting down thinset between the backerboard and the sub-floor and taping and thinsetting the the seams.  Is there any advantage to this?  What's your opinion?
